happening when all of that started and all of that chaos began? >> having bombs go off around the last family member that i have left was pretty frightening. a walk in the woods leads to a video called the mysterious plant. >> see the freak of nature that left one couple creeped out. >> i feel like it's mad and it wants me to get away from it. >> plus, the coy pond floor that let's you walk on water and whose turn is it to walk the kitty? i have a couple of videos for you guys of people behaving badly. first in wrigleyville in chicago, illinois, you've got a bathroom in the middbrawl in th a pizzeria in the middle of the morning. this happened because some women cut in line at the counter in front of a couple other ladies. the fight started and then it looked like everyone got involved. people at the restaurant did call police, but by the time the
2:01 pm
police showed up, the brawl had stopped. two people treated for minor injuries, but no arrests were made. >> nobody like a line jumper. >> nope. and that leads us to our next video, another line jumper create ago brawl, this time at a costco in san francisco, california. this video was uploaded to "right this minute".com by one of our viewers named swrams. he's an off duty sheriff's deputy. using not nice lady-like language and there are a lot of young people around. as she pushes her shopping cart out of costco she turns around and suddenly noticed that this guy has his camera rolling. watch what happens. oh. >> he cuts the camera off and then he told us he did inform her that he was an offduty officer. >> did she call down at that moment? >> he said she did have a few
2:02 pm
words for him and eventually calmed down, left the costco. but by that point, police had shown up. no charges were filed against her, but she did have to forfeit her coastco membership. >> oh, you're kiting. >> if you're embarrassed because you were being filmed because you were acting like that in a public place, then don't act like that in a public place because there's cameras everywhere. the images in this video are very dramatic and hard to watch in some parts. it comes from china. an internet cafe caught on fire. if you look at the bottom of the screen, you can see the furious fire coming from the windows of the cafe. not only is that bottom floor bunig,he da smo mi f top windows and there are people standing on a ledge above that first floor with someone else
2:03 pm
dangling from that window where that smoke is coming out. the fire started at the cafe, but it spread to the nearby hotel. one of the most difficult parts of this video comes right about here when you see this. and, again, it warn you, it's very difficult to watch. two people, probably out of desperation, decide to jump from the fourth floor of this building. immediately, people rush over to their aid and, fortunately, there is an ambulance right there to provide aid. incredibly, they only suffered broken arms and legs from the fall. >> you can tell that people were doing anything they could to get out of this building. you saw there there was a sheet tied from out of one window someone used as a rope to get down. >> you're saying they jumped from the fourth floor on to concrete and they only suffered broken bones. >> yeah. you have to ask yourself, a chance for broken arms and legs or your life. it's a question you have to answer. >> i have some footage from some of the aftermath of this fire, and you can see it was
2:04 pm
merciless. there were multiple casualties and at least 60 people injured. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. yesterday on our show, we told the story of a man named josh kreary. you remember this story. josh is 27 years old and is he's blind. because of a degenerative retinal condition that he was diagnosed with at age 14. ran the boston marathon in 2012 and was planning on on running it again in 2013. an amazing story because of josh's condition because josh can't see. but, of course, now we know what happened in boston yesterday. there were deaths and injuries of many people there in boston. we have josh joining us right this minute to talk to us. josh, how close were you to where these attacks went down? >> they were at the same spots that we were about 6.2 miles out. >> what did you think was happening when all that chaos began?
2:05 pm
>> well, my sister gave me a call because she was actually sitting in the section at the finish line. she called me probably within ten seconds after, said there was an explosion, there were sirens going off and is people were running away. and then i lost connection with her. and at that point, i told my guide runner, let's just stop running. the further we run in, it's going to be bad news. >> describe those first few moments after the explosions. >> well, last year, more than three months after the marathon, i lost both my parents. and so having bombs go off around the last family member that i had left was pretty frightening. >> something just blew up. >> what did you guys do immediately afterwards? >> we went off the course and just sat down and tried to call -- my guide runner cameron tried to call her. she was able to get in touch
2:06 pm
with a really kind family, got into their house and gave us food and drink and is let us stay there until family came and got us. >> do you plan on doing anything different with the donations you've raised from this race? >> my donation res going to cancer research. but i think a lot of what i do in the future will definitely be impacted by this. and i plan on being -- again next year. >> so tell us what you're doing now to help people that can't get home. >> they're doing -- at the finish line. i'm sure thousands of runners are displaced, so i will try and do what i can. i would do what that family did for me. it was an act of kindness. mike marina of ottawa, canada, was inspired by that meteor that was caught on all those dash cam videos in russia. he wanted to catch something
2:07 pm
spectacular, too. and he did. here he is merging on to a freeway. watch this truck up ahead. notice what's rolling. >> oh, the axle. >> the truck lost the axle and tires off the back and he witnessed the whole thing on his dash cam. and you can hear his reaction. >> what the [ bleep ]. >> which is what a lot of people might have said if they saw that. the interesting thing is, he saw the driver get out of the truck. as you can see, he's climbing out all by himself. >> how does the whole axle on a truck fall off like that? >> i think it's safe to say this is probably not operator error. >> what's unbelievable to me is it just rolled off the side of the road, nobody else hurt. a motocross race gets off to a rough start when -- >> boom. >> that is a giant pileup. >> why the big wreck was no match for the riders. and make your eggs with ease with the -- >> rolly egg master cooking
